Ready In:




  • NOTE:

  • Enough turkey to cover the bread (we used deli turkey, sliced 1/4-inch thick)

  • White Sauce:

  • In a small, stainless steel sauce pan, melt butter or margarine over low heat.
  • Whisk in flour.

  • Heat until mixture is bubbling.
  • Cook one minute longer, whisking continuously.
  • Whisk in cheese. Stir until melted.

  • Preparing the sauce ahead of time is not recommended.
  • Plating:

  • Prepare four serving dishes by placing a potato and a serving of broccoli, or your choice of sides, on each.
  • Place one piece of toast on each plate.
  • Top with two slices bacon, then cover with turkey.
  • Pour equal portions of sauce over each. Serve any extra sauce on the side.
  • Variation:

  • Place under the broiler for two minutes or until the sauce is browned on top.
  • Serve the sides on separate small plates.
  • Warn your guests these dishes are HOT!
  • Hints: Using precooked turkey and bacon saves time.
  • Shred cheese or buy shredded.
  • Turkey can be cooked in the microwave, leftover, or bought in the deli.
  • If you choose deli turkey, be sure to get it cut about 1/4-inch thick.
  • If pre-packaged, use at least three slices per serving.
  • Bacon can be microwaved or fried.
